The venture capital market is witnessing a surge in tech start-ups dedicated to women’s health, a sector known as femtech. This niche industry is rapidly capturing the interest of investors.

In the first half of this year, 70 femtech companies have secured over $375 million in funding. Experts predict that within two years, the market could expand to an impressive $50 billion. The potential for growth is vast, particularly as women’s involvement in life sciences research and clinical trials continues to rise.

However, as femtech continues to evolve, entrepreneurs in this field will encounter numerous communication challenges. Overcoming these hurdles will be crucial in mainstreaming women’s health and empowering women to take charge of their wellness through innovative technology.

There are several PR approaches to help overcome the communications challenges.

Deep-rooted cultural taboos around sexual wellness can embed silence, secrecy and negativity around women’s health issues. It is important to note that these challenges are not limited to cis-gendered women, but also some transmen, gender non-binary and intersex individuals. Studies show it leads many girls and women to experience shame over natural physiological processes.
